Good price comparing room, facilities and great location. The airport limousine stop is in front of the hostel so it is very easy to get to and from the airport. Right in Dongdaemun shopping area. Dongdaemun Design Plaza is just opposite. The underground is very near and there are 3 lines so it is very convenient to get to anywhere in Seoul. Mr. Hong, the manager is very helpful and kind. The only disadvantage is the towel is small size.

Definitely come back again next trip.

Convenient location, just 5 minute walk to Metro Station and Dongdaemun, opposite to the new Design Park.
Safety is not a concern even at midnight.
Rooms are nicely decorated, with separate bathroom. But it's quite small, and cleanness should be improved a little bit.
Free jam and bread available.
The owner speaks English. He's nice and helpful.

Room was small with limited space. 2person unable to walk. The space is only small space from bed to toilet. No towel provide. Toothpaste n shampoo available.Location is great . free wifi. We stay ground floor, can hear people talk outside. Not good quality sleep. pillow is like can buy with $1 dollar? it is a sponge pillow.only the quilt can accept. Night market just outside the guesthouse street. Not suggest to stay here if r not supplier, because wholesale market selling clothes at the price not low and u have to buy at least 3piece. It is better to buy at goto mall. If you take bus from airport can see the hostel easily but it is more expensive than take train. Near subway station. Mr hong can speak good English , friendly n helpful. He allow us to put our luggage during our stay at nami island n mt sorak. Nothing missing.

First of all, let me start by saying that the hostel is not that bad. For the price, one gets the basic accommodation, no bells and whistles, no frills. Room was quite worn out and in need of some maintenance. There is a fridge and an electric kettle in the room but there was insufficient cutleries/utensils (not enough cups/mugs). Microwave oven provided upon request.

Checking in was a hassle for us because of late evening arrival. Room with wrong configuration was given instead of what was promised during reservation and booking time. Had to change rooms twice after much "discussion" with the manager. Not a good impression for a first time customer.

If using the accommodation strictly to wash up, sleep and be out again all day, then it is fine. Other than that, it will disappoint. A PC with Internet access is provided, but it does not come with the English language pack for the Windows OS, so it is in Korean with no option to switch to English.

The hostel is very near a subway station and there are plenty of eateries around the vicinity. Dongdaemun night shopping area is just a few minutes walk away. Location wise, it is scores very high, but do take note that the area is filled with Russians (shops signs are also in Russian).

The location is very convenient, the subway station is within 5 min walking distance, there are many resturants and cafes nearby. The Dongdaemun shopping is about 10 to 15min walks away. There is a convenient store downstair, a good place to get drinks and snacks.
The room is of good size, the beds are good enough for a good night sleep, the air-con is powerful enough. There are shampoo, shower gel and washing powder in the bathroom. We are happy to find many hangers in the room. Rubber slippers are provided for use in the bathroom.
There is no daily room service and you can ask Mr Hong to clear the rubbish when needed. We brought our own towel as towel is only available by rent. There is only 1 lift in the building and it's slow, but you can exercise by taking the stairs.
Taxi drivers cannot find the hostel even with korean address and map, so we just say go to Dongdaemun Lotte, then direct the taxi to the hostel.
Overall, we are happy and will consider to come back in future.
